About

Thank you for joining me this far & I hope you continue to journey with me.


My yoga is inspired by the landscape in which I live and home is located on the Black Isle, where the birch woods are set as a backdrop to my daily yoga practise.


I am a registered British School of Yoga Specialist Hatha Yoga Teacher, and I also teach Yin & Vinyasa Yoga. I hold a number of classes & workshops online and in person & I also offer bespoke packages, including individual sessions & retreats.


Uniquely, I am able to combine yoga with sea kayaking or paddle-boarding. There are many places locally to explore by foot and by sea kayak, including the varied and often challenging coastline of the Cromarty Firth and as a Sea Kayak Coach & Mountain Leader, I can help you discover the hidden gems of the Highlands.


Our breath and emotions are connected. Yoga brings awareness and control to our breath patterns, allowing us to notice when our emotions are affecting our breath, and using the breath to calm our emotions. The more you can connect with your breath, the clearer you think. Join me on the mat, all are welcome

Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga

Practicing Hatha yoga, will allow you to develop strength, mindfulness and flexibility over time. There will be extra attention to detail, with verbal assists, helping you to find a little more ease and comfort in your practice.


Vinyasa Flow Classes, coordinate movement with breath, to flow from one pose to the next.


Create a deeper mind | body connection through yoga poses & breathing exercises. Create opening in the body, relaxation & self discovery. All levels are welcome; no experience necessary.


Individual sessions can be completely tailored to your physical and emotional needs for your own practice. You may have a specific question about your practice; or you may be beginning your yoga exploration; or seeking to find a way back after an injury. Perhaps this is simply the most convenient way for you to have a regular practice.


All classes & sessions end with a deep relaxation, absorbing the benefits of your efforts on the mat.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga, incorporating principles of traditional Chinese medicine, with asanas (postures) that are held for longer periods of time than in other styles.


A mindful and relaxing practice, that teaches physical postures. I often incorporate an extended relaxation into these classes; Yoga Nidra (Sanskrit: योग निद्रा) or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage, typically induced by a guided meditation.

'Yoga is the perfect opportunity to be curious about who you are'


Outdoor & Beach Yoga

Over the course of the last year, I have appreciated the local walks, woods and shores more than ever. We are lucky to live in the beautiful Highlands and getting outdoors is so important for our wellbeing too. In the Scottish Highlands, we do have the added challenge of the weather. However there are the right clothes for everything and layers, woolly hats and leg warmers are definitely 'in' this season. (If they aren't we shall start a trend).


Living by the woods and working from home, I have become more immersed in the sounds of nature and the day to day changing colours of the season.


Let's not wait for the weather...lets enjoy it! (With the exception of thunder, lightening and horizontal rain or gale force winds). OK - you get the picture, but we can ZOOM on those nights instead and make a pact that it really does have to be properly stormy for us not to be out!


What do I need?

Clothes for the weather, (layers) and I'm going to rock out the furry snow boots or bare feet depending!

A sense of humour

Always check the class is on before you leave.

You must book in advance as space will be limited and no cash will be taken

You will need to bring your own equipment.

Mats must be spaced socially distanced apart. (I do have some old ones for sale at £2.50) or use a washable throw

Old clothes - it will potentially be muddy or sandy!

Only verbal adjustments will be offered

There will be no toilet facilities, so please arrive ready to go to class

Bring your own hand sanitiser

A completed health form emailed before the session if you are new


Please do not book or attend in person if you are feeling unwell, have a continuous cough or fever


Bring a flask if you would like and some chocolate (but not to share unfortunately)

A camp light / torch / lantern - nothing flammable please (if near dusk)


The class will meet and depending on location, we may have a short walk to warm up. The class will be a fusion of all things yoga and very much responsive to conditions.


The class will run for 1 hour, including arrival and departure


Your cost is £10 per session.


For the session to go ahead, there needs to be a minimum of 3 bookings and there will be a maximum number of mats too, depending on location.


Please note that I am following Yoga Alliance Guidance for local measures in place.
